"That you might know"' life at A. C. C. has been 
our object in preparing this book; and we hope it 
will have a living message for you. With pen and 
pencil and paper and kodak and honest effort has 
been given to each phase of life here. Look 
through it, and if you see errors, attribute them to 
our inability, and not to our insincerity. 

May this volume prove a perennial recall of the 
pleasant days we have spent here together.

As green the world doth turn in spring, 
As hope and gladness it doth bring, 
So come our Freshmen every year 
To gain their fame and honor here. 

As summer sheds her wealth on all 
From Sophomores words of wisdom fall. 
The fullness of this time o' year 
Is like their wit, so sparkling, clear. 

As in its glory comes to fall, 
With ripening grain, rich stores for all, 
So, Juniors rich in learning, lore, 
Add wisdom to their bounteous store. 

Then come the quiet winter days, 
When songs are sung in solemn lays 
So are the Seniors, stately, true, 
Filled with joys past and hopes anew.

Since our lives are measured in deeds not words, it will be fair to recount 
some of the achievement of the last few months that we hope will make for progress 
in the history of our Alma Mater. 

We ought to note first the enlarging place our school has recently been made 
to occupy in the minds of the people of the Carolinas. The Carolina Enlargement 
Campaign stressing as it did financial goals and aims also rendered the college a 
great service in the publicity it received. As token of this awakened interest in many 
places, letters come almost daily from prospective students whose interest in many 
cases we are sure was evoked by the campaign. What great progress can Atlantic 
Christian College have made than that boys and girls of the right type should be 
attached to us? In many places children yet in the grades are looking toward us as 
a training place and parents are giving promise that they will be here. 

There were two other forward steps taken in the summer that deserve men- 
tion — the summer school and the repairs. The six weeks' summer school was un- 
dertaken at the solicittation of the State Department of Public Instructor and was 
given its full approval. It was not a large school but it was a good one and it really 
had the A. C. C. spirit. The stludents worked hard some of those sweeltering hot 
July and August days, yet they enjoyed their stay they said and many came to the 
office with expressions of goodwill for our college. Their goodwill was not taken 
out in talk either for they sent us some good students. 

After the summer school was over the improvements which had been planned 
to be made in three months was put on and rushed through in three weeks. We did 
not get all we deserved or needed but some things are better as a result of the sev- 
eral thousand dollars we expended. 

But the suummer, important, busy, and rushed as it was could be only a side 
isue to the big thing that came early in September. And by the way the happenings 
of the day were themselves a proof of progress. The great inrush of new students 
and the return of so large a proportion of those who had been here before marked 
the birth of a new spirit of loyalty and cooperation, which is both progress and as- 
surance of further progress. 

It reduces us to mere figures should we attempt to give numbers of students. 
Our increase in attendance was almost one-third but that cannot represent all the 
progress we've made. The whole of it can be represented only in that indefinenable 
tiling that we call college spirit of morale or enthusiasm. That subtle feeling that 
you are working with a something that is something that counts. That progress has 
become apparent in class work, athletics and most student activities. Splendid ex- 
amples of this spirit can be found in some of the departments and their public per- 
formances and exhibits. True it hasn't all been progresive, we've suffered our re- 
verses and retrograding movements, but the main tendency has been forward and 

This is not to recount all the things that are forward looking. It is enough 
however to bring us to this thought that progress must continue or a slump is in- 
evitable. Shall we not continue our advance into next year with a better college 
than we ever dreamed of in our wildest fancy? 

H. S. Hilley. 


Dean Howard Stevens Hi 1 ley came to 
our college at an opportune time, just 
when the brotherhood was beginning to 
appreciate the value of A. C. C. and the 
great field designated her. Dean Hilley 
is a young man of pleasing personality, 
farsighted. open-minded and he lias 
strong convictions, and a dee]) and 
abiding faith in God and his fellowman. 
He is a man of fine executive ability and 
is wanted in the world of big business. 
However, he has dedicated his talents 
and life's service to the Kingdom of 
God, and has definitely committed him- 
self to the task of enlarging and equip- 
ping A. C. C.

a teacher and as a scholar. He has had 
extensive training in this line of work.

In order to fully appreciate Mrs. 
Grim, a person must have one of her 
courses in English. In addition to the 
important facts gathered from her lec- 
tures one soon discovers this outstanding 
characteristic '"That she means what she 
says". The Expression Department also 
owes much to her faithful labor, and the 
beauty of the Dramatic Club room is 
due to her efforts.

Everyone loves "Miss Fannie". She 
not only assists students in solving their 
class-room problems, but those outside 
as well. She has a wonderful way of 
winning the confidence of people, and 
as a result, has meant to us the "friend 
indeed"' on many occasions. Without 
her A. C. C. could not be quite the

To find one person who is always the 
same let us utrn to Mr. Case. He 
possesses that rare individualistic touch 
which wins for him many friends. 
Each person who comes in contact with 
him feels that a personal interest has 
been shown by him. He has a wonder- 
ful way of keeping his students awake 
even during the sleepiest hours of the 
day. We are sure with his diligent 
effort the '"House over the way," will be 
the handwork of a "Case," and his study 
will be a favorite haunt for the "philos- 
phic thinkers." He shows a good visual 
memory, when he says, "Let's see, its on 
the left hand page, the last paragraph 
from the bottom down in the corner."

Dr. Wooten, or "King Wooten," as 
he is known to some, came to A. C. C. 
in September with exceptional ability 
for his work. In the class room he 
makes every one feel that work is neces- 
sary, for at the most importune moment 
he surprises you with, "Name for me 
the twelve cranial nerves, please." He 
has a winning personality and both 
faculty and students admire and esteem 
him. He has given us many proofs of 
his skill as a physician of the body, and 
soon we fear he will have to heal hearts. 
We know success awaits him in his 
medical profession for he thinks, as all 
others think, that his profession is the 
summun bonum.

Mr. Sadler is loved by all the stu- 
dents for he has not forgotten his school 
days. He is especially popular when 
he conducts chapel. We have learned 
to look forward to those days, for we 
are sure something interesting is in store 
for us.

Amid bright hopes and joys untold 
Our class of '21 was born. 
Taking honor as our goal 
We push on to more beyond, 
Tho' the radiant sure of the future. 
Many times did not brighten our way, 
The glowing flame of discontent 
Led us on to this starting day. 

A wale! Awake! My comrades true 
Slop your dreaming, much must be done. 
The future bright hopes holds for you. 
In the west sinks the glowing sun. 
Hasten! Prepare! Others on yon depend. 
Will you not make clearer the way? 
Yes, rise class of 21, merul 
With love this broken chord, today. 

Hasten! Salute the task with a smile. 
For within you hidden talents lie waiting 
The world gives the acid test. 
But you are made of stuff for winning. 
Win you must! Win you will! 
For leaders in a cause you be. 
You are the gold, glistening still 
From the melting pot of A. C. C. 

Hail to you! Class of 21, 

Bound with friendship's tie, 

Not a day wasted, nor an hour gone. 

Where do not cherished hopes lie. 

No more is our goal only honor, 

But changed it must be anon. 

Dear to us is our Alma Mater, 

Yet, there's more beyond, more beyond. 

A. M., '21. 


Custom demands and A. C. C. approves that the history of the class of 1921 
shall not go down unwritten; such perfect years of joy and happiness mixed in 
with hard work and misfortunes seem months to us rather than years. Never were 
four years spent more profitable, nor more pleasantly than these that have just 
passed; and if each of us live the life of Methuselah, the years which stand out 
more distinctly to us than all the others, will be those spent at A. C. C. 

Our Freshman year seems almost a dream to us, and some parts of it like a 
nightmare, and a horrible one at that. How green we were! And what fun the old 
students had ! However after a few weeks had passed, and the Sophomores had given 
us a very nice reception we decided that the world wasn't so cruel after all, and that a 
few of the old students were our friends. By the end of the term our "Know it all" 
feeling had entirely worn off and we left in May realizing fully, that our task had 
only begun. 

What thrills of joy and excitement we had in coming back the second year 
"honest-to-goodness" Sophomores. And how we planned to "welcome" the Freshies! 
Something else however greeted us before we had time to carry out our plans: The 
influenza and S. A. T. C. What a mixture that was, and how we did have to strive to 
make that year a success; still by a hard fight we won, and the victory gave us double 
courage and renewed our zeal. 

When September of the next year arrived and we found ourselves back on the 
campus again, we were only seven strong: but we never once lost courage nor sight of 
the goal for which we were striving. We realized that these seven could win any- 
thing, so our Junior year began full of determination. Much real work was ac- 
complished that year, and the time was so fully taken up with school problems and 
social affairs that May and commencement seemed to come upon us in a mad rush. 
We had long had the goal of Seniorship in view, but never before had we realized 
so thoroughly what it meant. 

Among the days long to be remembered September 7th, 1920, stands near the 
top. Was there ever a bunch of boys and girls prouder and more dignified than those 
of our Senior class? At our first meeting Mabel Lynch was elected President of 
the class; Marion Brinson, Vice President, and Gladys Peel secretary and treasurer. 
We were very glad at this time, to welcome a new member, thus making the number 
eight. It took us only a short time to realize that there was a great deal more to 
being a Senior than the name, for the responsibilities and duties of college life 
seemed to crowd upon us in full measure. But just as all other Senior classes over- 
come their many tasks and responsibilities so did we, and even though our time 
seemed filled to overflowing with work, we always found time for the many recep- 
tions and parties given us, and the entire year has been a happy one. We have only 
a few more days together and our hearts begun to ache, and we grow sad as the 
year draws near the end. 

We love you dear old A. C. C. and long, long after we have gone the ties and 
friendships which we have made here will remain alive and vivid in our memory. 
There is a spot in our hearts, and a large one at that, for you our Alma Mater.

Arapahoe, N. C. 

Marion brings joy to all when he ap- 
pears, for indeed he bears the motto, 
"Just be glad," and truly does he live 
up to it. Another so gifted as he can 
hardly be found. He excels in oratory, 
wins favor on the stage, is a favorit? 
with all the ladies and ro less delights 
us with a fine tenor voice. He has 
chosen the ministry as his profession 
and we know success awaits one so 
earnest in his work as he. He wins the 
ove and esteem of all who know him. 
Here then we say: 

"Luck to you, rarest optimist! 
Moonbeams prophesy your mirth; 
Golden sunshine your ivorth."

Wilmington, N. C. 

Cecil is the only "Outlaw" at A. C. C. 
but he is different from the "outlaws" 
as we know them. He was here for the 
first time back in 1905, but he so loved 
A. C. C. that he had to come here again 
this year, and the Senior Class was glad 
to have a new addition to its number. 
A. C. C. has found he is not a real "out- 
law" for he excels in all his studies. 
As an every dav man and as a preacher 
his cheerful disposition causes him to 
be much admired. We don't know 
whether, after graduation, he will want 
"Moore" education or not but we do 
know that he will continue his minis-

Falkville, Alabama 

From the Sunny South hailed Grady, 
the first of our number, filled with high 
ambitions and courage for the goal he 
will win, the Ministry. Diligent and 
studious is he, and no task is too hard 
for a trial. Indeed we believe him to 
have as his motto: "All things are easy 
to industry, all things difficult to sloth," 
for never do we find him idle and there's 
always "expended energy" seen when he 
is around. Here's success, once, twice, 
yes thrice for Grady, and we know he 
will win for he is 

"Impulsive, earnest, prompt to act, 
And makes his generous thought a fact. 
Keeping with many a light disguise 
The secret of self-sacrifice."

M. B. Brinson, '21. 

In moments of reverie and noiseless thinking, those moments so sacred to life, 
the tide of memory rises high over oar hearts, and our throats seem to choke, and 
our eyes float in tears. The innumerable times when foul has been our play, causes 
us to regret the past. But the past cannot engage all our thoughts, so we turn to the 
present. Here we are disappointed, for the present is shifty, its offers are hidden, 
its time is fleeting, and our ability is limited. So we weary of the present. Yet 
we have a hope — the future. When we are caught up into the future our sorrows 
disappear. There is no sorrow there. Man has never wept over his future. The 
future is all hope and promises. Now it is my happy lot to forget all our past and 
present sorrows, and' pull back the curtain and let you get one view of each of us 
playing our part on the stage of life. 

Getting an exact and true account of the future was at first more than I felt 
myself capable of doing, but a magician solved my problem for me. I was told 
that on a cold night, after the lights have been turned off, if I would remove the 
valve from my radiator, place my ears against the exhaust, and listen to the 
steam slowly die down in the boiler, all the time keeping my eyes fixed on a faint 
star to be seen in the East, then go quietly to bed, with the name of a classmate writ- 
ten on a paper slip dangling just over my pillow, and go at once to sleep, I should 
get a view of that classmate twenty years in the future. This I carefully tried the first 
night, wondering what the result wouldl be. 

As mv consciousness passed into semi-consciousness I began to feel that I was 
passing rapidly through both time and space. At length, I seemed to be placed on 
the earth again, in a place I did not know where. It was a mountainous country, and 
the place looked like a resort. Off on a little level place I saw some young girls 
playing tennis, and an older women along the side-line delighting in their good plays 
— as this older woman saw me, she came to meet me. It was a happy meeting. It 
was my old school friend Anna; and she said. we were at Moore's Springs. We sat 
down, in the shade of an umbrella tree, and there she told me of her life. Her husband 
was owner and manager of the resort, and Anna said she was trying to make others 
happy by teaching the delicate tourists sports that were fascinating and wholesome. 
I remembered how much like Anna that was: trying to make someone happy. 

My next night's slumber brought me to San Francisco. I saw a large, chizzled- 
rock church, and Japanese people flocking in there. One of them, seeing my wonder, 
invited me in, saying that any white man was welcome. I went; and to my surprise, 
Cecil Outlaw was their preacher. After church he told me that he had been there 
twenty years. He said the Japanese flocked to our country soon after we left col- 
lege in 1921, and were giving such trouble that he went over there and began mis- 
sion work among them and with no help he had made that success. His own men 
built that church; and they were worthy citizens: most of all loving their "Big White 

On the third night Gladys Foust visited me. Just where, I have forgotten. She 
told me that one of our annuals, in 1921, got into the exchange, and went to Wash- 
ington Citv; and as a result of her drawings in there, the United States Bureau of 

Typography looked her up, and employed her on a salary of §5,000.00 a year and 
expenses. She had been practically over the world, and was going abroad again soon 
to get some information abouut the marshes of Northern Russia. 

I was now fairly interested in my work. The next night I wrote Gladys Peel's 
name on the paper. I met Gladys that night at an opera, in New York. She was 
accompanist for one of New York's violinists. After the concert I went up and 
spoke to her; and she introduced me to the violinist as her husband. She was as 
laughing and as cheerful as she used to be in A. C. C., in 1921. 

To locate Grady Spiegel was the object of my next night's sleep. Much as I 
expected he had gone to school until he received his Ph.D. Then he had accepted 
the chair of Sociology in the university of his home state, Alabama. Grady's ser- 
vice as a preacher was sought every Sunday he felt free to go out. He also was ap- 
pointed by he school to follow the workings of al committees composec o student: 
there, and to see that they did their work. I asked him how he managed to keep up 
with everything. His reply was that he had it all set down in his "little book." 

These nights took me all over our country. The next night I went to Florida. 
There in Jacksonville, I saw a big limousine approaching, and I recognized the lady 
driving to be "Kat." Upon seeing me she brought the limousine to a standstill, and 
asked me if I would ride. She was on her way home from the Woman's Club, of 
which she was President. I went with her to the mansion, which was situated just 
outside the city limits, by an orange grove, which her husband owned. "Kat" said 
she was either in the city all the time, or had guests from the city; and that she was 
"the happiest person in all the world."' 

Mabel had always been a success, and I wondered where I would find her. 
I met her at a banquet in a big new hotel in Raleigh. At the banquet the Governor 
arose and called out, "Ladies and gentlemen, I want to present to you the well known 
woman in whose honor this banquet is given." At the end of this statement I saw 
Mabel stand up, and the guests cheered for almost five minutes. Then the Governor 
continued: "For ten years she has been Superintendent of Public Instruction in 
the 'Old North State.' When she began, we ranked third from the bottom of all the 
states in the union, educationally, and now we stand fourth from the top; and all 
the honor is due to our Superintendent." 


now remains for me to tell you about myself; and that will not take long, 
for in telling of my best friends I have almost forgotten about mvself. I remember 
that I was preaching to a large audience in one of our city churches; but whether I 
was their regular pastor, or whether I was a returned missionary I do not remember. 
However, I do remember seeing a Harvard classmate of mine who received his Ph.D. 
the same time I received mine. 


(To the tune of "Juanita") 

Soft o'er the campus. 

Falls the light of this last day: 
Leaving our Alma Mater, 

Longer we cannot stav.

True to her we've tried to be 
Then have we failed? No never! 

Success is our's you see. 

eniors! Seniors 

Rugged tho' the path may be 

Seniors! Seniors! 
Striving for our A. C. C. 

Some mystic charm to knowledge, 

We vainly seek to find: 
Four years we've spent in college, 

Alas! Fate is unkind; 
For the charm has entrapped us, 

Many things claim our time; 
And the lure of knowing, 

Claims our strength of mind. 

Seniors! Seniors! 
Still we work for honor's fair 

SeJiiors! Seniors! 
The prize is rare. 

When far away we've drifted, 

And cares infest our way; 
Should dearest hopes betray us, 

And all riches fall away, 
Still we banish all this sadness, 

As we turn our mem' res back; 
And recall those days of gladness, 

Nor hope will we lack. 

Seniors! Seniors! 
The time has come when we must part 

Seniors! Seniors! 
We now depart.

Strive, for out of strife success is born. 

We, who are moulded from mere clay

their heart 
Beholding success, and then in peace were 

laid to rest.

It is needless to say that our "Teenie" 
of the golden hair is loved by all — every-

resolute and true and A. C. C. is fotunate 
to have her.

Lottie, after finishing her course in Ex-

knowledge, so she returned to A. C. C. this 
year and joined the Junior Class. She is

"Bud Lloyd" is known not only by the 
students of A. C. C. but by people in town. 
His sunny disposition and comical way 
make him a favorite wherever he goes. 
We do not fear that he will ever have to 
wear "specks", for he does not believe in 
letting his studies interfere with his educa- 
tion. If you are "down and out" visit 
Lloyd. He will make you laugh. We like 
to think of him as always brightening the 
path for some one.

Windsor, N. C. 

Elsie came to us at the beginning of the 
second semester from N. C. C. W. She is 
specializing in expression and we are ex- 
pecting great things from her. 


Three long years ago, we, the class of '22, unsophisticated, green, and gawky, 
appeared on the campus of old A. C. C. Despite the harboring fear in our hearts 
we tried to look wise and to take every new shock with a composed mien, character- 
istic of people in our position. We did not have to be told; yes we knew we com- 
posed the most distinguished and intellectual Freshman class that ever walked a 
college campus. However, with the nightly visits of the "Sophs" came a few mid- 
night plunges and other thrilling experiences that made our blood run cold. We 
began to realize that there were other important personages at A. C. C. besides our- 
selves. Gradually we felt the superiority slipping away and long before the end of 
the first semester we settled into our rightful positions in the college life. The re- 
mainder of the year passed rapidly and we left with a keen determination to show the 
freshmen of the next year just what an humble position they were expected to occupy. 

We returned lo college the following September with the same youthful antici- 
pation of fun with the "freshies,". That seemed to be our biggest task as we saw it — 
the one thing which we had been looking forward to since the first night the "Sophs" 
visited us. Even though as Freshmen we had been shown our insignificence in com- 
parison with the other classmen, we had not had the youth and the love of romance 
taken from us. We met the "freshies" with all the dignity that we could command 
and with an air of authority and wisdom, ushered the innocent creatures into more 
than one waiting trap. As we saw them conforming their desires more and more to 
ours and the reluctance with which they became real Freshmen, we fully forgave the 
Sophs of the year before for the deeds they had "done unto us." But fun could not 
reign supreme in the lives of true Sophomores whe realized that it was "up to them" 
to make a record of which they would be proud in the years to come. So, we, the 
class of '22 in the second year of our college existence, began real work. We were 
not to young and thoughtless to realize that true perseverance and honest work each 
and every day was the only road to Success. And this we determined lo have — Suc- 
cess! We parted for vacation with that same feeling that Success must come. 

Vacation passed quickly for most of us, and when our little group assembled 
once again on the old campus we found ourselves much older in both experience and 
wisdom. Fun was not altogether gone, for we still had a keen sense of humor, but 
we felt that there were more important things to be clone than to trifle with the poor 
Freshmen. As Juniors our duties had changed and we clothed ourselves with a dis- 
tinguished dignity. We admired and loved our Seniors, but our devotion was not so 
intense that we were unable to see their faults, and seeing them, we determined to 
profit by them. So in these closing months of our Junior year we are still admiring 
our Seniors and are following in their footsteps just so far as we think best. It is 
true that each Senior class has the opportunity of being just a little better than the 
one preceeding. So, logically speaking, it follows that the class of '22 will be the 
greatest in the history of A. C. C, for we still hold "Success" as our goal, and by 
earnest endeavor we shall reach it — Success!

Many there be who look askance, 
At eager Freshmen aiming high, 

But stay, just give us half a chance, 
'Til haughty Sophomores pass us by. 

For truly do we long and want, 

To reach a goal beyond our grasp, 

Our visions high, our dreams e'er haunt, 
In dreams we reach the goal at last. 

But dreams are made of filmy air, 

And "work" our watchword we will make, 

So fling aside our fancies fair, 

New hopes within our breasts awake. 



On September the 6th A. C. C.'s campus was flooded with throngs of 
girls and boys. A large number of them were Freshmen, even though some 
people would have taken us to be Seniors, if they had judged us by the 
"dignified and important manner" in which we strolled through the halls 
and on the campus. 

Everyone welcomed us with open arms and made us feel that our days 
at A. C. C. would be the happiest days of our life. What a time we had 
"getting acquainted" with everyone. We were not long in learning the 
members of our envied Sophomore class. What a horror we had of those 
highly esteemed Sophs! But to know them was to love them. We have

After those strenuous days of classification, and a number of receptions, 
we begun our College career at A. C. C. Alas, sad but true, we found that 
our College life was to be not as we had first thought, a life of ease and 
entertainment, but a life of work and development, (interrupted now and 
then by entertainments and jolly good times). We are toiling on and striv- 
ing with unceasing labor to reach the goal and receive a reward for our 
efforts, a real diploma.

Wilson. North Carolina. 
Commencement Time, May 1933. 

Honorable Joseph A. Kinsey, 
La Grange, N. C. 

My Dear Brother Kinsey: 

You are now ninety years old. Many years ago you planted a seed in Wilson, others 

watered, and now God is giving the increase. It is this increase that I want to tell you about. 

and in the telling of it record the appreciation of a grateful brotherhood for the part you had in the 

beginnings of what is now, indeed a splendid institution. We call it A. C. C. — A. 

You, I am sure, know the history of the College as well as any. up to the campaign of '20. 

About that time the preaching members of the faculty were called in for full time duty at the 

College, and 1 have missed those visits during which we had those heart-to-heart talks of the 

College and other interests of the Kingdom. 

Beginning at this period, then, let me give you a birds-eye view of the College of today. 
On account of limited space we shall use a pseudo-military form of letter. 

Place: The dream of removing the College to another cite was abandoned at a Board meeting 
in May '21, and an intensive program of development was entered upon. Whitehead, old, 
Koundtree and Lee have been metamorphosed but still bound the College. 

Buildings and Equipment: The main building is an outgrowth of the old administration building 
and girls' dormitory. By strengthening the old walls the architect was enabled to make it a 
full four-story building. It has elevator service and besides class rooms, the main offices 
and teachers' apartments, it has accommodations for 300 women. The old chapel has been 
included in the general scheme and is now adorned with opera seats, a modern stage, and 
pipe organ. It has seating capacity for 1200 people. President Hilley's offices are in what 
was formerly the dining hall. This structure with its deep red pressed brick veneer and 
the four large fluted colonial columned porch and the roof garden render this a building 
of attractiveness and class which satisfies the most exacting. President Hilley's home has 
been made modern in every particular. Located where the "White House"' of olden times 
was, is a Commons Building with Domestic Science Hall and more teachers' apartments. 
The old Boys' Dormitory has been remodeled into a modern Science Hall and College of 
Music Building. In what was sometimes called "The \ alley of Hinnom." or "Gehena." is 
our central heating plant and Gymnasium with swimming pool. On the corner of Lee and 
Rountree is the new Dormitory lor 300 men. Between this building and the Administration 
Building just opposite the Commons is the new City Library co-operating witli the College. 
We now have an adequate library for any first class institution. In this square of buildings 
is a most charming court with fountains, flowers, settees, and promenade. 

Secondary Schools: We have a Girls' High School at - - and a Boys' Military School at 

both strategic centers for 

people. The schools have proved the

years a source of pleasure, knowing that you are remembered as havin 
work of Christian ducation. 

Ninety years old! By your optimism and energy you have kept sweet and lovable to this 
good day. You have given us new meaning to the lines of Browning: 
"Grow old along with me! 
The best is yet to he. 

The last of life, jor which the first was made. 
Our times are in his hand 
If ho saith, 'A whole I planned, 
Youth shows but half; trust Gods 
See all, nor be afraid!' "

It does not seem necessary to the Editor of this department to go into a careful history of 
the alumni of A. C. College, in as much as the facts as to the location and present position of 
all the old graduates were carefully set forth in the last issue of the Pine Knot by Mr. Farish. 
Just a word about the class of Nineteen-Twenty, however, will be necessary as these names did 
not appear in the last Annual. 

Lawrence Moye is at Eastman's Business College taking a commercial course, in prepara- 
tion for the business career awaiting him. 

Rupert Phillips is teaching near Warsaw. 

Ada Gray Dixon is teaching school near Farmville. 

Selma Perkins is keeping books for a tobacco concern in Wendell. 

J. M. Perry is the successful pastor of the Robersonville Christian Church. 

Lottie Wilson is back at A. C. C. finishing her literary course. 

It will also be of interest to old students and friends to know that Bonita Wolff, Bessie 
Hodges, Hatty Hodges, May Anderson and Fannie Manning have married since the issue of the 
last Pine Knot. 

Since the history of the class has been so carefully written by my predecessor, nothing 
remains to me but to say a word about the place and function of an alumni association in the 
life of a college and to call to my fellow students of other days to rally around Alma Mater. 

It is a fact that the success or failure of acollege depends to a large degree upon the men 
and women it graduates. If they go out in life, and standing level with the men and women of 
other colleges are able to keep the pace and at times take the lead in the march of progress; 
if they build for themselves a fortune, reputation, standing; if they use their gifts in the exaltation 
of the nobler qualities of life and stand for the best thing; then the college from which they go 
is honored. If they fail, the college has failed. The only excuse for the existence of a college is 
that it is developing life. If it does this, the result will appear in the men and women it sends 
out. If it fails, the results of its failure will likewise appear. 

Now it appears to me that A. C. College has much of which to be proud in the men and 
women who have received their training here. When compared with an equal member of the 
products of any other institution in the state, we have not one single thing for which to apologize. 
Our men and women have made good. 

And having made good, they are better qualified than any others to look back upon theii 
experiences here and to say what was good and what was bad, and what would be best for pres- 
ent and future. There were certain imperishable ideals, certain standards of conduct and de- 
portment, certain ideals of scholarship and achievement, which were written into the very bolld 
of every A. C. C. student who was able and worlhy to attain the Bachelor's degree. As I look 
back upon my student days, and think of the things which went into the making of profound 
regard for our college, it seems to me that the ideals of scholarship with which men like Prof. 
Barham and others inspired us; the clean-cut, wholesome atmosphere of the campus; the su- 
preme contempt for sham and cant; and the notion that a man should dignify his work and 
make service the basis of preeminence, were some of the outstanding contributions which the 
college made to every thoughtful student. 

And now, Alumni, what are we going to do about it? Shall we give of that which we 
received, to every other cause, and withhold our hand when Alma Mater calls? We should be 
actively directing the major part of the affairs of the college, we should stand by each adminis- 
tration and see to it that those fundamental ideals which have given us our place shall not perish. 
Every grain of energy and intelligence which we have should be freely given to this cause which 
is so amply worthy. If our college is to be the great school which it ought to be, it will be only 
when the men and women who have been educated in its halls, and have drunk deeply of its 
spirit, give to the college a part of their time and their means and this talent. 

There are so many things we need just now. New buildings, new equipment in laboratory, 
library, and studios; more endowment; and more students. Who but we can feel these needs so 
keenly? It is a shame to let the splendid teaching talent of the college go on from year to year 
under the handicap which has always hindered it. What a pity it is that we cannot have a place 
adequately equipped in which those vital ideals for which the college stands can be taught with 
the maximum efficiency! Who shall make the people see the need and hear the call to this 
larger service, except it be those of us who know by personal contact how sore the need is! It is 
time, fellow alumni, that we get together and plan large things for our Alma Mater, and then 
see to it that the plans materialize. It it time for us to perfect an e..cient organization among 
ourselves through which the right sort of propaganda may be instituted for the accomplishment 
of those things which we desire. If we will stand together and do our duty, we can make our 
college what it should be. Will we do it? I believe we will. S. Lee Sadler.

doing her part to make its standads high 
and noble. She is very quiet and 
studious, but delights in true sports as 
much as any of us. In the class room 
her students think her rather stern, but 
she is ever ready to give her time in 
helping others in their tasks. We feel 
sure that in the list of friends of A. C. C. 
will always be found her name. 



The High School of Atlantic Christian College would not think of itself more 
highly than it ought to think. It does not claim to be the College nor would it have 
its students think of themselves as college students. But at the same time it is con- 
scious of having an important function to perform in the life on many young people 
in the Carolinas. Without its kindly offices young men and women who are now 
A.B.'s would not have had the help and inspiration to make the needed preparation 
to even enter college. Others who have had to turn aside to battle with the stern 
realities of every day existence before reaching college have here found courses of 
study which were suited to their needs and teachers who have labored faithfully in 
their behalf. 

Whether the students are destined for college or not it is the aim and purpose 
to awake within them a desire for the choicest things in life, to train them so that 
the higher wants may be satisfied and that thev may help others in the realization of 
the things that are most worth while. Mastery over self and over forces of nature 
and cooperation with others so as to make the best out of the world for all men is 
the spirit we would seek to instill. 

The High School is under the supervision of the head of the Department of 
Education of Atlantic Christian College, Professor Grim. While he does all of his 
teaching in the College he is deeply interested in the High School and gives not a 
little of his thought and attention to it. He is ably assisted by a corps of well 
equipped teachers.

It was a calm Autumn day in September that the ship called "The Class of 1021" began 
it's voyage. What became of the members of the Freshman class we do not know, for not a one 
of them has remained with us since then. As we think of the past, we wonder if they were not 
really shipwrecked on some far away unknown island, at the close of that year. 

The next year soon came, ami as we sailed on our voyage, it seemed ind 1 peaceful, the 

whole atmosphere was filled with the music of a perfect melody. Our task was not at all diffi- 
cult, or it must have been that we as Sophomores knew better how to make our ship glide along 
than the one that had just passed by. 

We started out with great determination to accomplish the task before us. At Hrst the 
sea was quite calm, and everything went on nicely. <>ur burdens seemed so few that we forgot 
what our task really was. As the year was coming to a close, all were lost except three who 
were able to come back the next year and resume their duties. 

One who came back was Sallie Adams from Four Oaks, a charming musician, and has 
won many friends among the students. 

Sybil Heath says she is from Ayden, a very prosperous little town in I'itt County. Sybil 
is studious, and tho sbe has trouble with her love affairs, she always performs her duties well. 

The third member of that class was Elva Moore who hails from Hath, the oldest town in 
North Carolina. It is way down in Beaufort County, situated near the Pamlico river. "Tho 
she fails, she never loses hope." 

The next year as Juniors we had two more members to join us on our voyage over the 
rough seas. By this time we considered ourselves indeed very wise. In our estimation there 
were none who could surpass us. 

Garland Gray is from Robersonville. He is very modest, and a quite fellow. His high- 
est ambition is to be a doctor. He excelled in football when that game was being played. 

Alma Stokes is another from Ayden. She has as yet failed to develop a love affair, and 
what she delights in most is going to sleep during study hour. Before joining us she was in 
school at Ayden Seminary where she did excellent work. 

Of all the years we had spent this was the happiest one. We bad learned to feud the 
teachers, or we thought we had. Cutting classes and missing chapel was a great delight to us. 
Most everything seemed to go our way. < Mir voyage was a pleasant one, although the sea was 
dark and stormy at times, and our ship seemed as if it were buried beneath the waves. Still we 
were successful and reached tin 1 end of the year's voyage in g 1 time. 

At last the time came for us to start on our last voyage. This time our ship was called 
the "Senior Ship." Indeed happy were we all. for we hoped to make it the very best year and 
have it mean more to. us than any year in the past. 

As we started out one beautiful Autumn day, we were surprised yet very glad of having 

the opportunity of taking with us ten more members which increased our class roll. Thrc f 

whom were supposed to have been shipwrecked the year before, somewhere mi the Isle of 

One of the hrst things we did was to take a few lessons in "How to Study Effectively." 
By this time we all became personally acquainted. 

The following were the new members who were on board of the "Senior Ship" as it Bailed 
away across the deep blue sea : 

Rosa Pridgen, Lillie Winstead and I.ula Norris Cox, all of whom were from the same 
little town, Elm City. Rosa added much to our class by her sunny disposition, and was 
unanimously elected by the girls as being the most athletic. 

Lillie and Lula Norris worked faithfully, and were always gladly welcomed in any group. 

Lewis Whitehead hails from Dover, to impart his wonderful knowledge to us. 

Roger Speir, or "Roger Spare," he is sometimes called, came from Ayden also, and was 
always loyal to our ship. 

Another is Annie Ruth Jones, unconscious of the firmness of the teachers, proc Is to 

have a good time. 

Katherine Gage is a most capable girl, and we are indeed glad to have her with us. 
Her accent tells us that she is from the extreme north. Olivet. Michigan, but sbe "tits in" with 
our Southern good times, and has made many friends. 

Gladys Williams, Hazel Bathae, and Florence Hearne are from the same place from 
which our ship started on its long happy voyage, and to which it now returns. Their desire is 
to do their best and win the goal. 

There has always been a feeling of good will and sympathy among the members of our 
class. We have invariably been interested in the welfare and desirous of gaining the good will 
of each other. 

Now that we have almost reached our destination, we look back and see when the class 
of 1021 first sailed, it seems years and years ago to us now, tho it has only been a short time. 
Here's to the Class of 1021, Here's to our faculty dear. 

May its future be bright. May they ever better be ; 

Here's to the goal on which they fix, Here's to the name we love. 

May they ever keep it in sight ; A. 0. C A. C. 0.

/ would like you my friends to bear in mind. 

That I am not a poet of the regular kind. 

My poem is not of the Longfellow style 

And it's missing in meter once in a while. 

Perhaps too you'd like In learn 

The poet's name, my name is Hearne. 

They shoved this off on me 

And made me the poet of the A. C. C. 

High School Class of Twenty-One 

The finest class under the sun. 

I guess that's about all to be said 

In explanation, sa I'll go ahead, 

And read you with what my poem is laden 

A fete words about each lad and maiden. 

Adams of course from Genesis doivn 

Heading the list is always found. 

Sallie leads in music still, 

And other things too, but Oh! you "Bill". 

Rosa Pridgeon, tall, stately and serene, 

If ill win her way as a sweet lovely queen. 

Lula Norriss Cox — You know what they say? 

Is young and charming but anxious to be "Gray". 

Hazel Bethea, the next we'll salute, 

Is very popular, vivacious and cute. 

Katherine Gage we'll give her her dues, 

She keeps the class laughing and drives off the blues. 

Alma Stokes thinks it quite befitting 

To spend her spare time at A. C. C. just knitting. 

Next it is my pleasant duly 

To mention Annie Ruth Jones, our real closs beauty. 

Elva Moore, quiet, sweet and demure 

Is loved by all, of that I am sure. 

Gladys Williams is charming and young, 

Her greatest trouble is wagging her tongue. 

As the lower grades from Sybil Heath fades. 

May she make the "Grady" of all grades. 

And like Lill IF in stead attain great joy. 

By getting her lessons, likewise a boy. 

The boys since the Amendment has been passed. 

Of course, now should be mentioned last! 

The first of the last is Garland Gray, 

IT' hose teachers say will be President some day, 

Next is the class favorite, Roger Spear, 

Who is quite clever for one of his years. 

At saying things witty he can't be beat. 

His only desire is, plenty to eat. 

The sport of the class is Louis If hitehead. 

But can't solve Geometrical problems, so 'tis said. 

My poem is ended, mv duty is done, 

Of course, how well, I leave it to you 

And bid one and all, a kind adieu. 

Florence Emily Hearne.

diana; Degree of Bachelor of Music, Indiana 
University; Pupil of Leo Sampaix. Syracuse, 
New York; Present position since 1916. 

Miss Smith believes in "Work while 
you work and play while you play". 
She has no patience with idleness. No 
one can accuse her of showing partial- 
ity, she gives justice to all. 


Assistant Piano Instructor

Graduate pupil of Mrs. Harry Prentice. Dunn- 
ing System, New York; Degree of Bachelor of 
Music, Atlantic Christian College, 1920; 
Present position, 1917-1921. 

Miss Chapman, or "Lill," as some 
know her, has the true A. C. C. spirit. 
She delights all who hear her with her 
musical productions, and indeed A. C. 
C. is proud to possess so accomplished 
a daughter as her own. She can work 
and smile at the same time, and has a 
cheery "Hey, Crazy," for every one she 
passes; but with all her spirit she wears 
the teachers cap of dignity.

1920; Present position, 1920-1921. 

Miss Lambert is a teacher of much 
merit, as has been tested by her class in 
Voice during the past year. 

She has undoubtedly a decided talent 
for interpretation; her taste is excellent, 
reserved and intensely musical. We 
love her not only for her musical ability 
but for what she is: A true woman, 
sympathetic and entirely altruistic.

position 1921. 

"Eddie," as he is popularly known, 
is greatlv admired by all at A. C. C. 
He is full of fun and music, and charms 
us with his violin, for he can make it 
talk and laugh, cry, and sing to suit 
each mood and whim of the students. 
He can make you forget the cares of the 
world and carry you into realms be- 
yond. Practice is his watch words. 
Yet all is not work, for he is a great 
friend to everyone, and "Honey" is his 
favorite expression.

Instructor in Art 

Mrs. Margaret Spiers is sweel and 
charming, and easily wins her way into 
the most hard-hearted of hearts. Al- 
though she is kept husy painting china 
for the many brides all over the United 
States, she has managed to spend some 
of her most valuable time in cultivating 
the talent of her pupils. We know and 
admire her for her many splendid qual- 
ities. She is a graduate of the N. C. 
C. W. and continues her study of Art 
each summer at New York.

cial Department of several Colleges; Present 
position 1920-1921. 

Mr. Anderson, tho' very quiet is full 
of wit, and when he appears in Chapel 
the students know to expect something 
original. He has a gift for writing 
poetry, and from time to time delights 
us with poems in Chapel. The busy 
click of the typewriters show that he has 
created the atmosphere of work in his 
class room.

Expression Teacher 

The School of Expression is under 
the supervision of the Head of the Eng- 
lish Department. It gains its vivacity 
and spirit from its able leader, Mrs. 
Grim. When Mrs. Grim is present, 
nothing ever lags; readings are given 
with more "pep" and enthusiasm; plays 
go off like clock work under her careful 
supervision. Certain members of the 
Dramatic Club have visited neighboring 
towns and presented groups of plays. 
In every instance these presentations 
have been successful and a credit to the 
persevering efforts of Mrs. Grim.

"Remember that in all the troubles that may come to thee, and whatever thou mayst pass 
through, there is one great, beautiful goddess who abides above the troubles of men and is often 
most beautiful in the hearts that are most troubled. Hold fast to the Goddess, Music, the most 
beautiful thing in the world." 

"First Violin." 
By Jessie Fothergill. 

Music has truly been denned as the language of the emotions, for indeed, what emotion is 
there which can not be expressed by music. We are all endowed to a certain extent with a love 
for music from the savage with his rude dances to the highest cultured musician with his know- 
ledge of Theory, Harmony, Counterpoint, and love for Opera. 

There are two classes of music lovers: the one class takes delight in the mere sound and 
jingle of the music; not looking for any higher purpose than this, they content themselves with 
the purely sensuous enjoyment that the sound affords. The other class looks beneath the surface 
and strives to fathom the underlying purpose. This second class is made up of those who rec- 
ognize in music an embodiment of artistic aims, an object of serious and refined enjoyment that 
appeals to the emotions through the intelligence. A love for the rhythm and jingle of music is 
born in us, but the love for the higher forms of music must be acquired. 

The pursuit and enjoyment of music calls for the exercise on the part of its devotees, of 
three- principle functions widely different. These are the functions of the composer, of the per- 
former, and of the listener. The composer is the source of all art — music. His aim is to realize 
the ideals with which his brain is filled. He seeks to give expression to musical ideas which 
shall call forth sympathetic feeling in those to whom the utterance is addressed. The function 
of the performer is different in that he is giving utterance to the thought of another. It requires 
self-control, self-abandonment and a two-fold sympathy, with the composer and with the audience, 
and personal magnetic power to such an extent that the audience will lose sight of the com- 
poser and remember only the reproducing artist. The audience must listen intelligently and be 
in sympathy with the artist. It is necessary, therefore, to know something of the composer's 
life, his varying moods, the condition under which a composition is written, if we would fully 
appreciate it. 

The American demand for music is the most varied in the world. The public taste for 
music is improving.. Musical taste is all a matter of becoming accustomed to certain kinds of 
music. One reason why the love for music in America has been more di. .cult to develop in 
America than in other countries is because Americans have so many more amusements which 
take their attention. The American people are waking up though, to a realization of what good 
music is, realizing that it must have more than technie, that it must be inspired. There must be 
a soul behind the music. 

Thomas A. Edison says, "Musicians are too ignorant of Science, they do not study the 
make-up of their instrument as they should." He says he has heard pianists playing on instru- 
ments of which one key would vary extra-ordinarily in timbre from the adjacent key, and yet be 
unaware of it. 

In regard to the future of our American music, Mr. Edison says: "It is with the children 
that we must work if we would turn this into a musical nation." Take Germany, the nation is 
not a musical one, certainly not as musical as our own. Brohms, of all their great composers, 
is really the only one we may count as a German, Beethoven, a Dutchman; Wagner, Mendelssohn, 
Meyerbeer, all Jews. Yet Germany has developed a vast love of music among the people for the 
simple reason that almost every child is taught some instrument. In a family, each child is 
given a different instrument to learn and in the home there is cultivated a love of art which proves 
more alluring than our moving pictures, and how much more inspiring That is what we must 
do here. It is not the schools and teachers that have in their power the making of a musical 
nation, but the mothers. If this is done, all our musical problems will solve themselves and a 
noble musical future will be assured our coming generations.

The year 1920-1921 has brought to the Dramatic Club twenty members. The 
largest number in its history. The Club is one of the most active and energetic 
organizations of the college and furnishes the school with a large part of its enter- 

One of the interesting features of the Dramatic Club is the occasional afternoon 
meetings which are held from five to six o'clock in the club room. The money 
earned by the club itself has made it possible to have this room refurnished, the 
walls retinted, and new draperies hung. The potted plants give a still more home- 
like appearance. The place is unusually attractive and restful and we find more 
than one student spending his spare moments there after a tiresome day. 

The Christmas party given just before the holidays was an unusual success. A 
short but interesting program was given and several contests were participated in. 
An immense Christmas pie was brought in, the contents of which proved to be small 
suitable gifts with appropriate rhymmes attached, for each one present. The 
rhymes were read aloud, causing much amusement. 

The Club members who were fortunate enough to be in several of the popular 
plays have enjoyed trips to some of the smaller towns. Plays were presented at 
Wendell, Kenley and Stantonsburg and we feel that the trip to Grifton on the fourth 
of February deserves special mention. In spite of the fact that the night was dark 
and rainy, the sum of one hundred and ten dollars was received. The members of 
the cast were most delightfully entertained for the night by Mr. and Mrs. L. J. 
Chapman and several of their friends. 

At present the Dramatic Club is at work on two new plays! "Esmeralda," the 
setting of which is laid in the mountains of western North Carolina, and "Valley 
Farm,' 7 a play of the old homestead type. One of these will be given in the early 
spring and the other will be our Commencement play. 

On the whole we feel that this year has been perhaps the most successful since 
the organization of the Expression department into a club.

Business Department 



An old proverb stales that a mickle makes a muckle. The old saying reminds us that 
our specials play a much larger place in our corporate life than we might think. They have all 
had good years and it is well to sum up their work and activities as a whole and as it contributes 
to the success of the college. 

The largest special department is as usual music: piano, voice and violin. The same 
members of the faculty .who have taught piano for several years have maintained their former 
high standard of training. This has been manifested not only in the music furnished for our 
ordinary school life but also in the special programs and public recitals given from time to 
time. Mention should be made in this department of the work done in connection with the 
Glee Club. This new organization lias afforded us pleasure in the chapel performances and has 
rendered valuable service in some of its appearances especially during the State Convention at 
Goldsboro in October. The violin department under Mr. Stalling's direction has made great 
strides and is making for itself a real place in the life of the college. 

The work of the voice and violin departments in public reminds us of the splendid plays 
put on by the Dramatic Club and the expression pupils. How they have delighted us with num- 
erous pla; s they have presented and how well they have expended what thy have earned in fur- 
nishing a room in the girl's dormitory for the pleasure and convenience of all We should not 
overlook either the great work that the Dramatic Club has done in advertising A. C. C. in a 
series of performances over much of Eastern Carilin. These have been favorably received and 
should be great student getters. 

Then we mention our baby china painting. This revival in a modest way of a line of 
endeavor that formerly played a large part in the college life has proved highly pleasing. In 
spite of the depressed financial situation, the class maintained its life and has done some excellent 
work. The display at the Wilson County Fair won all the china painting prizes offered and won 
much enthusiastic prais from those who saw it. 

This exhibit at the Fair was due largely to the interest and spirit of the other strong 
special, the Domestic Science Class. The goodies, canned fruits and vegetables, and various 
work of the class made us all wish we were taking Domestic Science. This class has not been 
large this year but it has been well taught. Its lack of equipment has handicapped it but we 
expect it in the years to come to surpass with some equipment its splendid work of the term in 
preparing our girls to be home makers of tomorrow. 

Last but not least either in number or in possibility of teaching a useful and serviceable 
work is the business school. For the first awe we have had a teacher giving his whole time to 
this work. Though hampered by the closeness of its quarters and by lack of su..cient equipment 
this part of our college has made splendid progress. The constant click of typewriters, t In- 
strange hiroglyphics on the board, and the stray sheets of ledger sheets are proof that the classes 
in business subjects were really on a business basis. 

Such in outline is the work of these lines of study outside the beaten track of literary sub- 
jects. They draw many students to us and they give us opportunity to equip many of them for a 
fuller life. Some say, long live the specitl in prosperity and progress with all that we have at

The "Fellowship" is a group of ministers and ministerial students who meet at 
the College every Tuesday evening to talk over the experiences of the preceding 
Lord's Day, and to discuss some theme of interest to the whole group. There are, at 
present, eighteen members of this group and we believe that each one would say that 
the meetings are of inestimable value to him. 

There is a certain loneliness in the life of one who attempts to lead the van of 
moral progress. The great army of believers moves but slowly, and the torch-bearer 
is in danger of infinite solitude as he pushes on, in the hope that the people will 
follow the gleam. The true minister is like, in part, to a great lighthouse, which must 
stand alone amidst the breakers, its light ever beckoning the mariner to the haven 
under the lea. And the minister, does he not too often have to stand alone amidst 
the wreckage and waste, pointing men to the haven of security? 

Now, this task has its compensations. There is supreme joy "over one sinner 
that repenteth". And many a friendly salute will be heard from the ships that pass 
in the night. Nevertheless the human fact remains that the minister has an isolated 
and somewhat lonely life. And in order to overcome this condition in every city 
there are Ministerial Unions, composed of all the ministers of that city. In their 
meetings they talk together and pray and sing together; they have fellowship with 
kindred souls; and they go forth renewed for their tasks. It is some such function 
as that which the "Fellowship" fulfills. We tell our experience, talk over our prob- 
lems, pray together, and in this way keep the bond of fellowship. 

It is our purpose to make the Fellowship a real factor in the life of every boy 
who goes out from the Collge to preach the gospel of our Lord.

Religious influence in the College is manifest in the several organiza- 
tions which foster religious thought and life. There is constant effort to 
develop and promote growth of Christian principles in the lives of students. 

Among the young men, the ''Thursday Night Prayer Meeting, '" and 
among the young women, the Y. W. C. A. exert a wholesome, helpful influ- 
ence, and many are the seed thoughts found in diese meetings which hear 
fruit and stimulate to higher ideals of life and action. 

The young preachers, in their "Fellowship" meetings have opportunity 
to discuss with members of the Faculty who are preachers, their successes 
and failures, thus gaining the necessary development for practical work. 

A number of students find means of preparing themselves for service 
in a Mission Chapel near the College where they make talks, teach in the 
Sunday School, and lead the music. 

Ideals of service are placed before the students by means of Chapel 
talks and private conference. Thus does Atlantic Christian College en- 
deavors to carry out her belief that "The soul of education is the education 
of the soul." 

Frances F. Harper. 




Among the boys there is a splendid expression of the religious spirit. Not 
only in mid-week prayer-meetings but also in Sunday Sshool attendance they are 
religiously active. It is understood that each and every boy should attend some 
Bible school on Sundays and they respond willingly and gladly. They assist in 
making drives and canvasses, lend their aid in revival meetings, in the song service 
or in any way they can and are ready to respond to any call in the religious activity 
of the school and its community. Surely they are doing much to extend His King- 
dom here on earth. From among the boys have been chosen teachers and leaders 
for our down-town Bible school and also for the mission work in the western 
part of our city. Others are serving as leaders and shepherds of flocks in places 
easily reached by raiload. 

During the spring short revival meetings will be held at some of the nearby 
points and the boys have volunteered to assist in every way they can, especially in 
rendering special musical selections. 

Not only are they active in the general occurrences in our religious life, but 
they serve often on special duties. They participate in the five minute missionary 
talks in the Sunday School, which has been observed for some time. These short 
speeches are both interesting and instructive and their aim is to present from time 
to time the call of the mission field. Bro. Stuart has been using the ministerial 
students in his morning services. They are allowed to have charge of the prelimi- 
naries of this portion of the day's worship, thus encouraging and assisting the 
boys as much as he can. We realize that we must not neglect the spiritual part of 
life and here we try to lay much emphasis. There exists among the boys a splendid 
morale and we desie to promote its growth that they, when they return to their own 
communities may be beacon lights for Him.

The Wranglers takes this opportunity to make itself known to the outside world. 
It was organized in 1919-20 and was composed of the members of English J Class of 
the College. In that year there were eight active members and the instructor, Prof. 
Grim was the only honorary member. The meetings were held at 6:30 on Thursday 
veiling. Four of its members participated in the annual inter-society debate. This 
year, 1920-21, the members of last year's club and Professor and Mrs. Grim constitute 
the honorary ones. The Wranglers now meet on Thursday at 10:30. One of the 
active members and three of the honorary ones will take part in the inter-society 

The word "Wranglers" is suggestive of the nature of the organization. "The 
object of the Wranglers is to awaken a greater interest in the student body of A. C. C. 
in the art of public speaking and in the proper use of Parliamentary Law and to train 
its members to the end that they shall become effective public speakers and skilled 
Parliamentarians."' To accomplish this object we lake up the study of Parliamentary 
Law during the first half hour and the rest of the hour we spend in practicing in our 
business what we have learned. Throughout the year we have debates in which every 
active member participates. Our work is not at all uninteresting and we feel that 
The Wranglers is one of the livest organizations in the school, and to make things 
more lively we once in a while have a social hour. 

Since organizing the club we realize more than ever how necessary our work is 
in preparing us for citizenship of the better kind and for conducting public assemblies 
of any nature. And who knows but that some of us may become Presidents, Senators 
or Governors?

In the midst of a busy senior year, in which lie is active in all college 
activities, Marion found time to spend a few hours each day on the Football 
field. He was placed at right end and was not replaced in a single game. 
Although somewhat awkward at first, he developed into a fast and steady 
end. To see him sack a forward pass was a real treat. He was also man- 
ager, and managed the team very creditably. Our regret is that he will not 
be with the squad next year. 


Williams, who distinguished himself most with his splendid tackles, 
deserves lots of praise. He played left end and it was almost impossible for 
the opposing team to get away with anything. He tackled big and little, 
large and small with equal vim and they were sure to stop. He is small but 
full of pep whether on the practice ground or in a game. 


Archie was among the first to report for Football. He was with the 
squad in the first game, and was in the fray in the last, but in different posi- 
tions. He was first placed at left-tackle but was changed to half-back. In 
this position he found his place, and became distinguished for his ability to 
twist and squirm his way through the opposing line. It may be said he 
showed as much football knowledge as one could the first year. We are 
looking for him to be a "Reel"' factor in the line-up next year. 


Milton never felt discouraged. He knew how to encourage a man when 

He was captain of the team; and his field 
on was full-back. No one was ever too quick or too big for "Captain 

encouragement was needed 




"Shorty" Branson, quarterback, was there every time when it came to 
Football. He loved the game and showed it in his playing. Altho little, 
he made that up with speed and hard work. He will no doubt be an indis- 
pensible man next year. Coack called him the "Wandering Missionary" but 
he made a good football player. 


"Tim" Bowen, guard, was a "Stonewal 

in the line and always o 


his share and more every time. He was in every game and could always be 
depended on. Looking forward to next year we predict "Tim" being one of 
the best Football men A. C. C. will ever turn out. 


"Dick" came gradually. He served his apprentice as a "sub", but 
before the season ended he was one of the first eleven. "Dick" probably 
made more progress than any other fellow on the team. The gayety with 
which he scans the field is sure to win admiration. He has been appointed 
Captain for next year, and is in good live to hold the position of either end 
or tackle. 


"Bill" played left end, and was distinguished by the confidence which 
the team placed in him for going forward and receiving a long pass. When 
the young ladies in die grand stand could stop admiring his beauty, then 
they admired his playing. He looks a bit delicate, but he is all a man. 


Bonner, or "Snookie" as he is known, cannot occupy much ground at 
one time, but he was found to always hold the important position. He is 
distinguished for always coining out late for practice. He delighted in the 
effort of an opposing team to run a play over our right "hall-back". 

■ iiiitirmmiiiiiiin 


"Reliable" Grey, who was one of our fastest and most reliable men 
this season deserves much credit (for his brilliant playing). His position 
was at left and Grey was always there for the ball. He played a fast end 
and it took a good man to stap with him. Grey was a credit to the squad and 
school. We expect to hear from him more next year. 


Whitehead, known on the field as "Applewhite", was the long man on 
the team. He did justice to his position, left guard. He was always out 
for practice and ready to go in the game no matter who was opposing him. 


Zeb is the tackle who doesn't say much about it, but who makes the 
play go. What he lacks in height he makes up in velocity. He trusts 
everybody like a gentleman, and expects to be trusted the same way. He is 
good to work a trick for his own side, or calch up with one from the other 
team. The bovs all like him. 


Hooten loves the game. He is known to us as "Rube", but visiting 
teams know him as "hot center". Just before the ball is snapped he shakes 
hands with the opposite center, and as soon as it is snapped he gets by him. 
You can count on him for some clever remark; and he always wants to know 
"When is the next game?" 


Hilary Bowen, although not a regular on the Football eleven, did good 
work during the time that he was in. He held his guard down excellently, 
and also made some bad holes in the opposing line. Hilary is expected to 
be one of the team's most reliable men next season. He was one of the most 
consistent men on the squad.

The spirit and the interest manifested here in College athletics are unexcelled 
anywhere. The athletic spirit is of a finer grade than is usually seen in college in 
that it brings all eligible candidates out to try for the teams. 

The athletic association corsists of the whole student body, and is well organized. 
There are four distinct departments of the association. These are: the tennis de- 
partment, the basketball department, the football department and the baseball de- 

in the fall and spring and the 

Tennis is a favorite game among the students 
courts are in use from early morn until dusk. 

The basketball depaitment has two divisions. A boy's team and agirl's team, 
teams have been better this year than ever before. Much enthusiasm and rooting 
are displayed at the games and mingled with these is that pull together spirit which 
makes the teams victorious. 

The football department was added to our association this year. The team was 
unexperienced but they played the game with the determination to win for our col- 
lege fame in the athletic world. Lnder Captain Milton Jefferson, one of the best un- 
experienced players, and a splendid leader, and under Coach Blackburn's guidance, 
the team developed into a splendid working machine and was full of fight from the 
beginning until the final whistle. 

With Mr. M. H. Grant, one fo the State's best athletes, as coach for this year's 
baseball team, and with much promising material with which to work, we are an- 
ticipating a very successful season in baseball. 

Nell Moye, '22.

"To the Dandelion" 

Come with me and lets hasten through the halls of imagination to the side of the road where 
we stop to fix our gaze upon a bed of flowers. Lowell's vision was wide, his imagination vivid, 
although simple thoughts were portrayed in this poem. To our minds quickly comes the picture. 
The simplicity and the commonness of the flower seems to suggest some quality to make it more 
beautiful still to the onlooker, and thus we ponder on the words: 

"Dear common floicer, that grow'st beside the way, 
Fringing the dusky road with harmless gold," 

until nature's beauty reaches forth and claims it as her own. Found by the wondering, roaming 
child the flower gives it message of love and sunshine. Glistening as from a pot of gold over- 
turned the splendor is matchless. To no one does it deny its fragrance, the hearts of rich and poor 
alike does it gladden iu springtime. Its value few realize and few know that, 

"'77s the Spring's largess, which she scatters now 
To rich and poor alike, with lavish hand, 
Though most hearts never understand 
To take it at God's value, but pass by 
The offered Health with unrewarded eye." 

A peace, a warmth, and a glow is found while looking upon this bed. Our thoughts are turned 
back to wanner climes and time and space are not heeded lor the eye is within the heart. To the 
bee in summer-time a great store room it is for sweets, and in for the waiting ones. It's mission 
it fulfills for the shadows of grass cannot hide it, and breeze only makes the gleam more brilliant. 

Childhood's thoughts are linked with those things so beautiful and gay for thus, 
"The sight of thee calls back the robin s song, who from the dark old tree 
Beside the door, sang clearly all day long." 

The song is so beautiful that our thoughts wander again to the realms above. Radiant forms seem 
to be heralding the song of quiet. Every day stays unstained and pure in my life, when for my 
companions 1 have the flowers and birds. These to us show some glympse of God's world of 
beauty in the common place. On swift wings do they speed. We liken their movings to the passing 
of time and the remembering of past deeds both happy and sad. No way of seeing God's love is so 
good as observing it in nature. It doth reveal to us that she is. 

"Full of deep love thou art, yet not more full 
Than all the common brethren of the ground, 
Wherein, were ive not dull, 
Some words of highest wisdom might be found;" 

and brings soothings to life's bitterest aches and longings. Again, 

"How like a prodigal doth Nature seem, 
If hen thou, lor all thy gold, so sonunon art!" 

The beauty thus appears fresh and we dream of its use. Flowers teach us the secret of peace, the 
sacredness of the human heart, and reflect to us the joy of God's heaven if we would but listen In 
their message. Each flower represents an open page in God's great book. Nature is comforting and 
cheering. Simple beauty is her theme for happiness. Here high and noble thoughts are found 
so true to the atmosphere in which they were created. No one grows too old to enjoy the beautiful, 
and flowers have the perfume of youth, and indeed to them let us say, 

"Ah, we owe 
IT ell more than half life's holiness to these 
Nature's first lowly influences. 

At thought of which the heart's glad doors burst open, 
In dreariest days, to welcome peace and hope."

Sitting by the window, looking o'er the lawn. 

Just wondering if this way, he'll chance to pass along. 

To watch here by this window, will you, pray with me, 
And if your eyes are very good, this it what you'll see. 

Slow from near the window merges soft a form, 
'Pears like he's waiting there lor a certain one. 

Hut its now past eleven, sleeping all should be 
Must be some one waiting, waiting there for me. 

Then out of the door 1 passed, feeling oh! so queer, 
Hoping still, you see, that no one else could hear; 

Alas! when I reached the landing, I listened long and halted, 
Down from the second floor, flowed sounds of doors unbolted; 

Breathlessly I nailed, straining ears for sounds, 
Silence mocked at me, so I chanced to venture down. 

1 sat upon the stairway, longing so for someone, 

When slowly toward me moved, this charming, mystic person; 

Chills of fear then smote me, 1 knew not whence he came. 
So upon the steps I lingered, wondering what's his name; 

When slow my courage faltered, I dared not look for aive, 
The moonlight teas so bright, that quid; and soon I saiv — 

Oh! quick what did you see, of me so many ask, 
Alas! vou see 'tis true, he was sitting there at last, 

"IT as just waiting here for you," he murmured soft and low, 
"I was so very lonely over in the Dorm' you know." 

Glancing up a second, I saw him wondrous tall, 

When on my burning cheek, a tear did chance to fall. 

Crossing swift the campus, hand in hand we sped. 

And with these words he stopped me quick, and then he said, 

"Why not let's go" — and then the door — it opened aide 
In walked the Dean, '"Why child!" she cried. 

And by the window waiting, wondering still am I, 
On those fancies pondering, wondering why 1 sigh. 

Oh! cruel dreams to take this hour o' mine, 
1 wake to find 'tis hut a dream — / pine; 

The gong soon sounds the hour, the time has gone, I find 
A precious date I've lost, alas! fate is unkind. 

Sleep! sleep, hath caused it all, and made me oh! so late, 
Away from me you cruel sleep, I must not miss that date.

Even Outlaws can be very sympathetic at times. Our Outlaw was heard to remark in a 
hushed tone: "The poor frog is dead and does not know it." 

A. C. C. is well known for its distinguished people. At one time there was seen on the 
campus a Batchelor, an Angel, a Wolff, a Bishop and an Outlaw. 

Dr. II duIi n: "How many axones and dendrites does a neurone have?" 
Kat: "Any number of axones and a pile of dendrites." 

A child's definition of Sentences: 

I. .Some sentences tell you to do something. Some ask questions and the others are those 
thai make you hurry up. 

Mrs. Grim: "Who is the author of the prodigal son?" 
Lloyd Chapman: "Isn't it Poe?" 

Park: "Who was King dining the war of the Roses, Brown?" 
Brown : "Dardanella." 

Dr. II ooten: "Is then' anyone in the room who has never been vaccinated for small pox?" 

Mary Lamm: "1 never have." 

Dr. Wooten: "I knew there was someone in here trying to evade the law." 

Mr. Outlaw: "You are a regular Outlaw, Mary?" 

Agnes Jt>nl;ins (naming Shakespeare's plays): "Macbeth, Hamlet,. The Vicar of Wake- 

Miss Smith (to a piano student who seemed unconscious that she was repeatedly striking 
wrong notes) : "If you'd fix your hair another way you could tel! when you strike a wrong note." 

Rosa Pridgeon (to l!n\ Yandiford, who was silting on the campus with Ruby Cannon and 
Pearl Peed) : "Roy, which do you like better. Rubies or Pearls?" 
Roy: "1 like Roses better." 

Dr. Wooten: "How do you know thai a Euglena is an animal instead of a plant?" 
Dolly: "It is isn't stationary. It can take up its feet and walk." 

Zoology Class: "Why does the worm have so many hearts?" 

Dr. II ooten: "It is a hearty animal." 

One hot afternoon while the hoys were practicing football. Milton Jefferson was putting 
forth a great effort and finally sent the ball bounding away. 

Bonner (seriously) : Now, Milton, 1 guess you will have to wash your feet. 

English E had been studying the style of various writers. After discussing such words as 
tinkle, murmur, and thunder. Lloyd Chapman very seriously asks. "Mis. Grim, are those words 
what you call stylish?" 

Mr. Outlaw, when asked lo compare the earthworm's stomach with thai oi the cray fish, 
dryly said: "The earthworm's stomach is one long intestine." 

Miss Kearney and Christine Whitley were walking on the campus. 

Christine: "Here goes Mutt and Jeff. 

Miss Kearney: "Oh, no, 1 have on my high heel shoes today. I have to write on the board 
ami I wore these shoes so 1 would not have to stand on the chalk box." 

Bible Exam: 1. Who was Matthew? 

Kat: "A Republican." 

Pro). Grim: "1 thought he was a Democrat." 

Marion Brinson walks into the room where English Examination is being given exactly one- 
half hour late, looks around with a puzzled expression and remarks, "Oh. you see, I needed thirty 
minutes extra study." 

Grady: "Mr. Sadler, il we use this book for outside reading then we can get credits in any 
University, can't we?" 

1/r. Sadler: "Yes. if you tell them who taught it." 

Dr. Wooten: "How many vertebrae in the frog, Mr. Bowen?" 

"Tim": "You mean in the foot?" 

Dr. Wooten, (solemnly): "Yes." 

Agnes: "Thai hole in the vertebrae is called foramen." 

Dr. Wooten : "The phonerang ? ? ! !

Suddenly I hear a bell sound. It seems as though it is far away and yet it's steady clink 
clink, clink, comes so persistently that I am sure it must be near by. As I listen my thoughts 
wander while I stare out of the window, at nothing in particular. Yet I appear to be seeing 
something very interesting. I am again at A. C. C. It has been raining all night and even now 
I can hear the windows rattle as the fierce north wind khizzes around the corner and comes in to 
pinch my nose. 

Vaugely I am aware of a sound in the distance. Nearer and nearer it comes until its mes- 
sage "get up."' ' : get up" reaches my ears. Is this me, or is it some one else? Surely I must be 
dreaming. Why that can't be the rising bell. I have just gone to sleep. 

Slowly I raise myself up far enough to peep out of the window. Now I know I was 
dreaming, for see how dark it is without? I'll just snuggle down for a comfortable morning nap. 
One can sleep so soundly when the rain is lazily pattering down and no one seems to be stirring 

Hark! I hear another sound. Surely that can't be the breakfast bell. No. It is only one 
of the girls singing: "Oh, Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?"' Why can't people learn 
to be considerate? If I had to get up and prowl around in the middle of the night I am sure 
I should not try to keep every one else awake. Even the pillow will not drown the strains of the 
beautiful melody. Someone calls out, "Where is my middy tie, who wore it last?" Very much 
disgusted I manage to open my eyes long enough to look at my watch. Without further hestitation 
I step into my bed-room slippers, and in exacth ten minutes 1 am calmly standing back of my 
chair in the dining room with my hair neatly combed and my collar all straight. No one seems 
surprised to see me there. 

C. W., '22. 


A balmy day in bleak December, 

I innocently ate candy street 

In Katie's room, as I remember 

When soft! ice heard the tread oj feet! 

The deanery entered — with a look' to vamp us; 

"Girls, you know, this means you're campused." 

In vain, we cried aloud jor mercy, 

And we have dates with Charlie, Percy. 

We said the candy smelled so good — 

Could she deny us such good food? 

She shook her head, this act would stamp us, 

And doomed we'd be jor one iveek campused. 

Up came Bill with a cheery grin, 

"I reckon I'll see you at one today". 

I looked so guiltless, without a sin 

And said in a sort of ordinary ways 

"I could — but I'm scared the dean would lamp us, 

For a week, Billy boy, yours truly is campused."

Paul and Beth went up the stairs 
To join the fun and laughter. 

Paul fell down and broke his crown, 
And Beth came tumbling after. 

DelTittr, DeWitte, the banker's son, 
Failed in his classes one by one. 
Classes were fleet, and DeWitte was beat, 
ind DeWitte went running down the street. 

There was a girl in our class, 

And she was wondrous wise. 

She jumped into biology, 

And broke three sets of knives. 

And when she found she'd broken them. 

With all her might and main 

She went to work and tried to mend 

The broken knives again. 

Little Miss "Kat" 
Sat on a mat 

Eating her curds and whey; 
When along came a rat, 
li'ho sat on the mat 
Ind frightened Miss "Kat" away. 

There was a stern dean 
Who lived in her room. 
She had so many children 
They 'most spelled her doom. 
She fed them on soup 
Without any bread, 
And scolded them soundly 
And sent them to bed. 

Aye, aye! Mrs. Ross, have you any food? 

Yes sir, yes sir, three plates full, 

One for the girls and one for the boys, 

And one for the faculty who make a great noise. 

To college, to college. 
To learn a little "trig". 
Home again, home again, 

To college, to college 
To dissect a big frog. 
Home again, home again

What Is Research? 

SUPPOSE that a stove burns too much coal for 
the amount of heat that it radiates. The 
manufacturer hires a man familiar with the 
principles of combustion and heat radiation to make 
experiments which will indicate desirable changes in 
design. The stove selected as the most efficient is 
the result of research. 

Suppose that you want to make a ruby in a factory 
— not a mere imitation, but a real ruby, indistinguish- 
able by any chemical or physical test from the natural 
stone. You begin by analyzing rubies chemically and 
physically. Then you try to make rubies just as 
nature did, with the same chemicals and under similar 
conditions. Your rubies are the result of research — 
research of a different type from that required to 
improve the stove. 

Suppose, as you melted up your chemicals to pro- 
duce rubies and experimented with high temperatures, 
you began to wonder how hot the earth must have 
been millions of years ago when rubies were first 
crystallized, and what were the forces at play that made 
this planet what it is. You begin an investigation that 
leads you far from rubies and causes you to formulate 
theories to explain how the earth, and, for that matter, 
how the whole solar system was created. That would 
be research of a still different type — pioneering into 
the unknown to satisfy an insatiable curiosity. 

Research of all three types is conducted in the Laboratoriesof the 
General Electric Company. But it is the third type of research — 
pioneering into the unknown — that means most, in the long run, 
even though it is undertaken with no practical benefit in view. 

At the present time, for example, the Research Laboratories of 
the General Electric Company are exploring matter with X-rays 
in order to discover not only how the atoms in different sub- 
stances are arranged but how the atoms themselves are built up. 
The more you know about a substance, the more you can do with 
it. Some day this X-ray work will enable scientists to answer 
more definitely than they can now the question: Why is iron 
magnetic? And then the electrical industry will take a great step 
forward, and more real progress will be made in five years than 
can be made in a century of experimenting with existing electrical
